Just one is more than enough for my taste, but eh. Wait for the wheel, as they say. The fad will die. Eventually. Probably. I think.
You'd think so, but I can't think of a time in the past several decades that vampires haven't been fashionable. Before Being Human
, it was Blade
, before that it was Buffy/Angel
, before that it was Forever Knight
and the Dark Shadows
remake series and Bram Stoker's Dracula
, and before that it was The Lost Boys
and Anne Rice's novels which started the whole vampire fad in the '80s. Although there was certainly vampire fiction on a continuing basis before then -- the original Dark Shadows
, a whole series of Dracula movies, I Am Legend
and its periodic movie adaptations, The Groovie Goolies
and The Drac Pack
in animation, Grandpa Munster, Count Chocula, you name it. Like its subjects, the vampire fad seems to be undying -- or at least prone to frequent resurrection.
